Quebec Summit on Multiple Sclerosis

Experts Assess Progress to Date

New studies on multiple sclerosis give hope to those who have the illness. 

Numerous specialists gathered on Saturday in Montréal to discuss the studies.

New advancements permit researchers to better understand multiple sclerosis, a chronic illness that affects more than 20,000 québeçois.

«We have found that it is important to permit the people who have the illness to assess the research completed.  We were expecting around a hundred people, but finally, I think we had more than 600 people who came out today to listen to the researchers, and to better understand what research has been done.», explained Louis Adam, Director for the Québec division of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada.

Even though the illness is still incurable, the Zamboni method, developed by italian doctor Paolo Zamboni, gives us hope.

A national clinical trial was authorized last September and around one hundred patients from both Québec and British Columbia will participate.
